There are air to water a/c units or chillers.  We used one such unit. 
They can be located just about anywhere since they can pump, or be fed 
water through a hose, and drain via another hose.

In fact we have the unit still for sale if anyone is interested they may 
contact me privately and I'd be glad to give you any details you may need. 
The manuf. is Koldwave BTW.
